Pretty Painted Harvest

Happy Monday peeps!  It's an exciting day in our house; Cassidy starts second grade at a new school! She'll be attending our charter school and she is excited about meeting new teachers and friends!  I hope to have some pictures for you tomorrow!  Meanwhile, I have been playing with the new Painted Harvest set, due to come out in the Holiday mini catalog on Friday!  I just played with some scraps on my desk; no challenges or anything!  So here we go!  The first one used a scrap of Whole Lot of Lovely with a Tranquil Tide card base and a little linen thread embellishment:

My flower colors were Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake.  For the second one, I used a background of Pick a Pattern; the flower used Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede, and I also stamped some leaves on the DSP in Soft Suede as well:


The sentiment was from Better Together, and I also added some gold thread behind my stitched scallop oval:

Last week Cassidy decided that Ethan had a gash on his head and needed stitches:

I'll spare you the gory details, but Grammy's stapler provided the best results:

I hope her second-grade teacher appreciates her imagination, LOL!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Love your pretty cards.
Cassidy has a great imagination and I am sure she provides lots of fun.

Sometimes it's more fun when we create a card, just to create...rather than for a challenge, don't you think? I really like what you made. Cassidy is a doctor in the making...hope she has fun in her new school.

Both fabulous, but LeAnne that stripe-y-ness on card two is fabulous! Did you create it using stamps, or is this a paper?
Oh I think you have a budding surgeon on your hands! Yikes!
Hope Miss C. has a fabulous first day!

Love your scrappy sunflowers cards LeAnne! The flowers have a lovely softness to them. Second grade, my goodness how time flies! Pure little Ethan. Hope those staples don't leave a scar ;)

Too funny about the doll needing stitches! I really laughed when I read the last sentence and saw the picture. She's one very creative little girl. :)
